We’re based in Chicago and we have some pretty brutal temperatures through the winter. Today it was below zero when I woke up and it was almost 50 degrees in London.
Where do you think we’d rather be?
This made me think of a very important travel tip. The winter is a great time to go to London.
There’s 4 Reasons why:
- Moderate Temperatures
- Less Crowds
- Cheaper Plane Tickets
- Cheaper Hotels
Despite London being much further north than the continental United States – Britain is warmed by the warm Caribbean waters that venture via the Gulf Stream. This make Britain’s climate milder.
Now, they’ve had a particularly harsh winter this year – but extreme cold and snow is rare in London.
I’ve been to London 5 times during the off season and I’ve always had a lovely time.
You risk more wintry weather in January but February is a little warmer and March is even warmer. By the end of February the Daffodils will be blooming – the first sign of spring in Britain.
So if your looking for the cheapest time of year to travel to London with reliably decent weather – then think about planning a trip in January, February or March.
